Domino’s Pizza is paving over potholes to preserve the cheesy integrity of their pies. Is it just a PR stunt? A sincere gesture of goodwill? Or is it also in their economic interest? Do roads and other “infrastructure” goods need to be provided by the government? Or do private individuals and organizations have incentives to provide such “public goods”? The FEEcast panelists explore these questions and also celebrate the recently completed FEEcon!
